Mercedes introduced the interior of the new generation S-Class sedanJuly 8, 2020
The German brand introduced the high-tech interior of the new-generation luxury S-class sedan. The cabin can be located up to 5 displays.
After months of spy shots and several recent official teasers, Mercedes finally showed us the all-new interior of the next-generation luxury S-class sedan. Inside, the new items have nothing to do with the previous model. Take, for example, the number of mechanical buttons and switches, which has been reduced by as much as 27 compared to the current S-class.
Although the interaction with headlights and wipers is available the old fashioned way – through mechanical switches, most of the other functions can be activated by touching, scrolling, voice or hand gestures.
Regarding climate control settings, Mercedes says they are “attached” to the bottom of the center display to provide quick access without having to navigate through several submenus.
The upgraded S-class will have up to five displays: a fully digital dashboard, infotainment system with a huge touch screen and three rear displays. As with the new Cadillac Escalade, these displays are created using OLED technology for sharper graphics with more natural colors, which consumes 30 percent less energy than a conventional LCD. The digital dashboard, which has four display styles and three modes, has the effect of a three-dimensional picture without the need to wear 3D glasses.
Another feature introduced in the new generation of the luxury German sedan is the optional Augmented Reality (AR) display for navigation as well as for driving assistance systems. A regular HUD (head-up display) is also available.
In addition to screens and cool HUD projection, the new S-Class boasts a more advanced voice assistant with support for 27 languages and a better understanding of what passengers say. Even those who are sitting behind can use it thanks to several microphones located around the cabin, which also help the MBUX infotainment system determine where the voice is coming from. The voice can even be used to change the intensity of functions such as seat heating.
Not so long ago, AutoTimesNews wrote that Mercedes-Benz is recalling 669 thousand of its cars. The recall campaign will affect cars that were sold in China. Problems affected several cars at once.
